Dermaplaning is a professional approach to exfoliation of the skin.
Unlike microdermabrasion which has the potential to break skin fibres, dermaplaning is a safe and effective method to bring your best skin forward. A custom designed blade is used to remove the outer most layers of dead skin, leaving the skin looking radiant and feeling smooth.

Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Add Dermaplaning to Your Skin Care Regime
- Dermaplaning will increase the effectiveness of the skin care products you are already using. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, you’re allowing for products to penetrate healthy skin cells.
- Removes your “peach fuzz”! Vellus hairs along the skin contribute to trapping debris on the skin which is a heavily contributes to acne.
- Diminishes the look of fine lines.
- Reduces the look of scarring caused by acne.
- Works on all skin types!
- No downtime! You will be ready to take on the day immediately after your treatment without the worry of redness.
- AMAZING make up application post dermaplaning. Your skin will be left feeling smooth, creating the perfect canvas for your favourite make up products to be applied to.
- Increases cell turnover. Without the weight of dead skin on the surface your body will produce new supple skin cells at a faster rate.
- Fast! Dermaplaning is a quick treatment that can be done as part of a routine to get ready for a special event.
- Make it an add on! Dermaplaning can most definitely be added on to another facial treatment to enhance the effectiveness.
What is microneedling?
Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), microneedling is a safe and effective way to treat acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, pore size, stretch marks, and pigment issues. Tiny needles are used to create controlled punctures in the skin, which forces the skin into repair mode. While in repair mode, collagen and elastin are produced at a rapid rate, both of which are key in minimizing the look of common skin issues.
What should you expect during a professional treatment?
To minimize discomfort during the treatment, we begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the area before needling begins. During the needling, fine needles are used to create controlled punctures in the skin. These needles are significantly smaller than the traditional needle, varying in size from 0.5-3.0mm. Depending on tolerance levels, the skin will appear red and slightly swollen, however these all resolve within a few hours to a few days.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
When the skin is forced into repair mode causing your body to rapidly produce collagen and elastin, the skin will look and feel firm and healthy. Benefits of microneedling include, but are not limited to: reduced appearance of acne scarring, surgical scarring, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, and pore size.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the condition being treated, you should expect anywhere from 3-9 treatments, with 4-6 weeks in between each. Once optimal results are achieved, one touch up treatment is recommended every 6-12 months.
What is the downtime?
This can vary from person to person, but typically the downtime would be 1 - 2 days. The more aggressive the treatment the longer the downtime. Your practitioner will go over tips and tricks so life can get back to normal for you as quickly as possible!

Body Sugaring has many benefits over waxing... ...here's the top 10:
#10. Our Sugaring Formulas are 100% natural.
Our sugar pastes are all natural. There are no chemical additives, no wax resins as a "cheat add-in", and no essential oils as adding oils has no value for sugaring to extract body hair. Also, we could not endorse that our sugar pastes are deliciously edible if there were additives that could cause adverse reactions to some individuals.
#9. Our Sugar Pastes do not stick to live skin cells.
With our technique, the sugar paste gently exfoliates only dead skin cells resulting in a much gentler sugaring even on delicate skin tissue areas like the bikini. The sugar is so gentle that it cannot tear the skin like wax can.
#8. Advanced Sugaring Treatments are economical.
Most clients see an immediate improvement, after the first or second sugaring, in body hair refinement and in many cases a major reduction of hair while improving the condition of their skin without the big $$$ tag associated with other body hair removal alternatives.
#7. Our Sugar Pastes are 100% water-soluble.
There is no risk of damage or staining to your clothes, and more importantly no damage to your skin. The sugar paste is easily washed away after sugaring with lukewarm water. You will leave your sugaring treatments feeling clean and smooth... one less thing for you to worry or think about!
#6. Comfortable lukewarm temperature.
No risk of burning your skin! This is where the sugaring magic begins to happen with our clients. When the sugar paste is massaged onto the skin, it allows the paste to seep into the follicles which in turn allows the body hair to "slide" out more comfortably for a complete extraction without body hair breakage.
#5 Only skin conscious products that are Paraben Free, Urea Free and No Petro Chemicals with 100% consistent quality.
Our Practitioners are certified ensuring the highest degree of education in the industry. We are here to serve you with exceptional customer service, amazing products, and incredble results!
#4 Pre and Aftercare system is very effective.
Pre-sugaring and after-sugaring care is essential to eliminate any chance of skin reaction from the actual extraction of body hair. But, that's only one crucial factor. The other relevance to Pre & After Care is to eliminate skin irritation due to improper skin care before and after sugaring for body hair removal. All products have been formulated, tried and tested, and proven extremely safe and effective. None of our products are tested on animals, only humans with very pleasing results.
#3. Our success is demonstrated on both genders of all ages, all skin colors and all body hair textures.
From every skin type and hair type to the toughest skin and hair types, we have successfully extracted nearly every body hair type with incredible results using the trusted technique and products.
#2. No need to shave between sugaring treatments and no need to let your hair grow.
The advanced sugaring technique (ball method) requires only 1/2" of hair growth for body treatments, eliminating the long wait between salon visits and customer frustration. Not applicable if you have been shaving. This requires at least 2 weeks growth.
#1. Our Sugar Pastes are 100% hygienic.
Our certified practitioners never re-use the sugar paste and always wear gloves on both hands. Sugar paste is always discarded after each client is treated. Another great benefit to using Sugar Pastes is that bacteria does not breed in high concentrates of sugar eliminating the possibility of cross contamination. No double dipping ever happens. The sugar that is used for you and you only.
Plasma Skin Tightening
Coming March 19, 2018!!!
Reversing the hands of time with…
Plasma Skin Tightening is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma to eliminate excess skin. Low risk, minimal downtime and more affordable then surgery. Plasma Pro Skin Tightening is known for it's success with Non Surgical Eye lift, Skin Tag Removal, Tummy Tightening, Stretch Marks and so much more.
The term “Soft Surgery” is used to describe the treatment because it delivers results similar to surgery, with no scalpel, stitches or bandages and minimal downtime. A minimally invasive procedure with much lower risk and at a more affordable price then actual surgery.
HOW DOES PLASMA PRO SKIN TIGHTENING WORK?
The Plasma Skin Tightening method has many advantages over cosmetic surgery, which makes it an increasingly popular treatment. There is no cutting of the skin, which means that there are no stitches required, and clients can return to work much sooner.
Plasma Skin Tightening is a relatively new innovation in the beauty industry in North America but has been used for a number of years in Europe. The extremely accurate device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its tip and the skin, to form a plasma charge. An electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissue retraction and tightening gives results that are comparable to invasive surgery.
WHAT IS IT USED TO TREAT?
Plasma Skin Tightening is able to treat a number of imperfections without any actual cutting of the skin. It can be used for:
- Eyelid reconstruction, including resolving baggy lower eyelids and excess upper eyelid skin.
- Skin imperfections and benign lesions, including skin tags and sunspots
- Improvement in the appearance of scarring, including post-surgery scars, acne scars
- Diminishing Stretch marks.
- Tightening loose stomach skin after pregnancy.
- Lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
- Facelift and necklift.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
As Plasma Skin Tightening is more than a simple tightening treatment, skin is actually removed, so the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of plasma treatment are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further ageing. But, the positive results should last you years depending on the area treated. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the best results will be seen after 4 weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 6 weeks for maximum results. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure. Those planning on treatment should also be aware that their race and genetics can also have an effect of the length of beneficial effects.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments required will vary according to the condition being treated, skin's laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 2-4 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to get better results, although it is uncommon to require more than two treatments. Appointments must be spaced out 6-8 weeks.
WHAT TO EXPECT-SIDE EFFECTS AND RISKS
Plasma Skin Tightening has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment.
There will be some tiny brown marks that have the appearance of minor scabbing, which are carbon crusts, but in 5-7 days these will flake away, revealing new pink skin beneath. Some swelling will be seen (especially in cases of eyelid treatment), but it is likely to only last 3-5 days at most. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare recommendations given to you by your technician.
NOT TO BE USED IN
As with the majority of cosmetic procedures, Plasma Skin Tightening should not be used on women who are pregnant or breast feeding. Although some darker skin types are suitable for the soft surgery procedure, it is not advised for those with very dark skin. This is because there is a higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (light spots) following treatment, particularly if the carbon crusts are disrupted by scratching, scrubbing or picking.
DAY OF TREATMENT
On the treatment day, it is recommended that no make-up is worn on the treatment area. We suggest taking an anti-histamine 30 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and continue to take anti-histamines for 2-3 days following your appointment.
A numbing agent is applied and left to take effect for up to 30 minutes. When the treatment area is sufficiently numb, the session begins with multiple connections of the plasma tip, spaced closely together. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable and slightly irritating. Treatment time is usually between 10-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area.
Immediately after treatment the area will be red and mildly swollen with small crustations and discoloration. You may experience a sensation similar to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 2-3 days. The crustations/discoloration should resolve within 5 -12 days depending on the individual and area treated. Results are seen instantly after the treatment, although this gradually improves over the course of the following 6 weeks. Essentially there is downtime, but it is considerably less then with surgery.
Following treatment you will be given thorough aftercare instructions to ensure that you see the best results. You will be given a specially developed medical foundation to protect the scabbed area from the light, but it has the added bonus of coverage. In the week following treatment (or until the treatment area has fully healed) an exfoliating wash or cleanser should not be used. Instead opt for a pH balanced soap (dove), and avoid rubbing the area.
The majority of people are safe to drive following their Plasma Skin Tightening procedure, but if the treatment area is around the eye, it is advised to avoid driving, due to potential irritation or swelling.
COST OF TREATMENT
Plasma Skin Tightening is certainly more affordable than cosmetic surgery and the prices of treatment depends on the area treated. When comparing a treatment to the cost of traditional, open surgery, it is about 50 – 75% less.
- Clients should be in good health at the time of the appointment, with no preexisting health conditions. If the client displays signs of cold or flu the treatment should be rescheduled.
- Clients skin should not be inflamed in the area we are treating prior to procedure.
- Clients prone to keloid scars are not ideal candidates.
- Clients with diabetes, healing disorders or lymphatic draining issues should not undergo treatment.
- Clients with a sunburn/sun tan should postpone treatment.
- Clients who have a history of Hyperpigmentation are not ideal candidates.
- The area to be treated should not have undergone any previous medical treatment or cosmetic laser treatment. (not including botox)
- Clients must not display any tanning at the time of the treatment.
- Clients must not display Herpes Simplex Virus (Cold sores/Fever blisters). You will need to reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing an outbreak. If you have experienced Herpes Simplex Virus (Cold sores/Fever blisters) in the past you must see your Medical Doctor and obtain a prescription for Valtrex and begin taking it 3 days before treatment and for 4 days following treatment. (This applies for treatments surrounding the lip area only)
- Not for clients with pace makers.
- Not for clients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
- Clients with Eyelash extensions receiving upper or lower eyelid treatment must have lashes removed prior to treatment and reapplied after 8 weeks.
- This treatment is only recommended on light-medium skin tones . Anyone with a darker complexions is at risk for Hyperpigmentation.
Once you have completed your appointment you will receive an in-depth AFTERCARE instruction sheet that must be followed.
Keep the area clean to avoid infections until the scabs have formed and exfoliated on their own. Follow the exact aftercare instructions given to you by your practitioner to ensure the best possible healed outcome.
- Ice the treated area
- Keep clean
- Gently apply your Aloe aftercare product
- Gently apply vitamin ointment every night
- IMPORTANT! Allow the scabs to come off on their own
- Be patient
- Avoid sun exposure
- Do not pick the scabs
- Do not apply any make-up
- Do not apply any bandaids
- Do not get wet
Swelling is to be expected after this type of treatment. This is due to the fact that the area will be recovering from a deliberate controlled burn, therefore the natural side effect is swelling. There are steps you can take to minimize the swelling but it cannot be avoided. You can’t avoid or cure the swelling – it is a response to the trauma. The swelling will subside in a matter of days.
A non-refundable $50 deposit is required at the time of booking to secure your appointment, consults excluded. The deposit is deducted from your final amount the day of your procedure. It is also transferable to reschedule your appointment provided we are given the required 24 hrs notice. It is not transferable to another person.
